Was last here 11 years ago and it was lovely then. Completely changed. Surrounded by other stuff and has lost its charm. No more camp fires on the beach :(

These guys will not let you have an empty glass :-) they light a fire at night and have a few Masai guys to dissuade any weirdos from coming in and freaking out groups of girls. No wifi though.

We stopped by Cholo's walking up and down the beach. The staff were friendly. The food was very good. Recommend it.

Stopped at Cholos for a drink and a bite. They offer nice enough food, mostly bar food. the drink menu, while extensive, doesn't include everything. The drinks also are a bit watered down. Wait staff was nice, service OK but not fast, food was ok....More

If you come to Nungwi, go for food to Cholos. They have some different things than other restaurants. Fresh fish, sushi and rolls are perfect. If you are a pizza-man, you can enjoy good pizza, as we did. Thanks Opaz

For my husband and I this place completely embodies the spirit of Nungwi: just chill and enjoy the gorgeous sea. We came here every day, in the daytime, for drinks and once for a bite to eat as well. We sat up camp here, ordered...More

Cholos is perfect for every occasion: fresh smoothie in the morning, tasty tapas in the arternoon, party at night. This bar is located ON the beach, which makes this the perfect hangout spot for lazy days in Nungwi. Big recommendation. Don't try their sushi though.
